I did an ED in Oct and loved Nice.

I just saw a Rick Steves segment on Cannes and he was less than enthusiastic about Cannes. He recommend all the other areas of the Cote de Azure over Cannes.

We are considering doing a European Delivery in the early fall on the GT. I think it is very nice looking.
